Baker’s yeast, the second-largest segment, is expected to reach $1.4 billion in 2015, after increasing from the 2009 estimate of $904 million at a CAGR of 7.9%.

The segment made up of active (probiotic) feed yeast is projected to increase at a CAGR of 9.6%, growing from an estimated $144 million in 2009 to $250 million in 2015.

The fastest-growing segment, bio-ethanol yeast, at a CAGR of 18.4%, was estimated to be worth $87 million in 2009, and is expected to increase to $240 million in 2015.

The global yeast industry comprises a volume of more than 4 million metric tons of yeast per year and with such output is the second-largest segment within the fermentation industry, just behind bio-ethanol but well ahead of any other fine chemical. Most yeast products are not really expensive and typically sell in the range of $1 per kilogram, with yeast that results from industrial by-products fetching considerably lower prices, and specialties such as autolysates and extracts higher prices.

The report provides the most up-to-date information on quantities of different types of yeast manufactured, on price developments and market values, as well as on industry structures. It enables the reader to understand the industry in general and provides a particular insight into the world of yeasts as intermediates and as end products. The report is designed to assist decision-makers in the fermentation industry by providing background information to be considered and to be used in strategic design and particularly in deciding on plant expansions or diversifications. The report should help the reader to understand that yeast manufacturing, on the one hand, is a large global and technically demanding business with some commodity character, but on the other hand still allows the generation of substantial margins, and guarantees volume growth rates, which became rare for many other food and chemical ingredients and intermediates.
